The goblets stem is formed of a Madonna Lily, which for centuries has symbolised the Virgin Mary, the only lily of true pure whiteness. The three open blooms are overlaid with rhodium: one of the whitest metals known, akin to platinum but more precious. Surrounding the base of the stem are three Lancastrian roses; the geographical boundaries of the diocese and Lancashire are practically the same.

On 26th October 1976 the Provost presented the First of these to HM The Queen, received by the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire on her behalf.
